Crafted at our local Native Creations workshop in Babinda QLD, they are hand made from Eucalyptus (Box wood) timber, and hand painted featuring varied coloured backgrounds, symbols and patterns.
Emu callers are a musical instrument and hunting tool made from a hollowed-out and then decorated piece of wood. Traditionally used by Aboriginal people when hunting, they are about 30 cm long and look like little didgeridoos.
The trick to using one is when striking the emu-caller at one end with the open palm, it makes an unusual sound. The intention is to attract the Emu away from its nest so that hunters could collect the eggs for food.
At only 30 cm in size, they make a unique and ethical Australian gift or souvenir for visiting guests.
